My System Specs

Default 6950 CF 12.8 stutter

Skyrim had major stutters, like 0.25s stutters, as well as 1/2s stutters

IN BF3 I think I have "micro"-stutters. I'm switching back to CCC 12.3, which is old but works

I went through so may problems to get my drivers to work correctly. Do a clean sweep with DriveSweeper and then try the 12.1 drivers, pure magic! Also make sure in your BIOS that you're running at 16x/16x or 8x/8x or whatever your board is supposed to run as in crossfire. I would check to see how well your cards are scaling with MSI Afterburner as well just to be safe. When i was having those problems it's because one card wasn't even running while the other was at 100%.

12.4 and 5 or 6 broke the compass of all things in skyrim, I think I tried 12.7 too, something was wrong with it in skyrim too. They seem to work fine with my other games, but for skyrim being so popular and almost a year old, AMD should have that sorted.

I find the 12.6 providing the best performance in BF3 but there is a noticeable amount of micro stuttering... Just wonder whether the 12.3/.4/.5 are better in that aspect.

I know that Battlefield 3 is known to produce Micro Stuttering with multi card setups...

I went back to 12.3

When I upgrade my GPUs in Dec/Jan (c'mon 8950s), I'm going to reformat for sure

I avoid the 12.8 since they're horrible for F1 2011, I get like 30 FPS or so with them.
